Charlotte Sports Today
Jeff Rickard lends his wealth of experience as a sports talk show host to WFNZ listeners every weekday from ten to noon. Jeff has been covering the NFL, NBA and college sports for over three decades and has a unique, “inside” look at the games we play that can only come from having lived with, around and adjacent to all of those leagues. He worked for over a decade at both ESPN Radio and SiriusXM, delivering shows on a multitude of topics and channels. He has attended and broadcast from virtually every major American Sports event and has been embedded with several professional teams along the way. Sports Illustrated named him the sports radio personality of the year twice while he was working at ESPN Radio in Bristol. As a behind the scenes Program Director, Jeff has led stations in markets such as Boston, Indianapolis and Salt Lake City to top rating and revenue shares along the way. He has also spent plenty of time in front of the camera as a Sports Director at two CBS affiliates and the Comcast Network. Jeff was also recognized by his alma mater as a Distinguished Alumni in 2014 at Colorado Mesa University. He is married and has two teen-age boys and spends as much time with them and his beloved Bogie as possible.
